You remember the feelings when you were first together and the sparks were flying. As time goes on, sex becomes less frequent and the romance and passion have waned.
Sometimes you think….
We as humans have a basic need for attachment, connection, and touch. When we find that is missing in our most intimate relationship, we are often left feeling lonely, empty, and dissatisfied. Sex and intimacy are an important part of any healthy relationship. Healthy sexuality is an essential part of our overall emotional and physical well-being.
Sometimes the last thing we want to do is talk about sex, especially if there is a problem. There is a common stigma around mental health and talking about sex is almost taboo. sex therapy is designed to help you and your partner discuss issues that are prohibiting sexual satisfaction and how to resolve those issues. There are many issues that can affect our sexual health (both physical and emotional), including low libido, erectile dysfunction, past or present abuse, shame, stress, mental health conditions, different levels of desire, unsatisfying sexual stimulation, and many others. But what most people do not realize is that they are not alone. 43%of women and 31% of men report some degree of sexual dysfunction. The best thing couples can do for their relationship? Seek sex therapy to identify problems and get to the root of the issue.
couples therapy or sex therapy allows you and your partner to discuss these issues in a supportive environment. In a typical session, we discuss and learn each partner’s feelings about sex and satisfaction, including wants and desires. Then we explore other issues like establishing open communication and looking at other areas that may be causing distress in the relationship. We focus on becoming mindful so each partner can be aware of their sexual being, inside and outside the bedroom. If there are physical issues that need to be addressed outside of therapy, a referral will be made to an appropriate medical doctor.
** Disclosure** Sex is only talked about with your therapist. No sexual acts will be performed with or in front of your therapist.
